- Thanks for the tip Mel. I didn't go out deeper than where i could
touch because of how far i would have to go out. Being i was at Lake
Erie in Ontario Canada i would have to go out about 200-300 yards for
the water to get over my head. I think the seemingly neverending
submerged sandbars makes this water sport safe for me to learn in and
improve my kiting skills without the risk of being dragged on my face
somewhere unpleasant. I'm guessing then that when i finally feel
confident enough with the kite ie: being able to fly without watching
the kite, then i could try some type of vehicle. Would you happen to
have any experience with water vehicles for kiting other than
kiteboards? I was struck by a car 5 years ago on my Harley and
needless to say i've led a very different life since then. I have
full upper body power and flexibility. I've seen the Peter Lynn Kite
boat on the Web but the cost is astronomical. If there are similar
vehicles of this type (homemade or otherwise) i would love to hear of
them. The PL Kiteboat can be seen at
http://www.quadrifoil.com/PeterLynn/PLsailing.htm . Sorry my
intention isn't to advertise i just need some ideas along this line.
Have you any information regarding my last post about the jumping?
Love seeing your post's on all the kitesurfing sites Mel. Your
teaching's and advice as well as other's, are the only real
information i have been able to get to help me with this amazing

- Was told on an earlier reply that a knee board has no upwind ability
because of it's curved/rounded sides. Nothing on the board to edge
